To elaborate: In order to run services via multiple instances, we're slowly migrating data to the Ceph filesystem.
However, while we were testing this for months, the practice sometimes got us hard. We apologize for the inconvenience and we'll do our best to restore the stability of the past years.
If you want to get involved with the infrastructure behind Codeberg and / or want to share your experiences with Ceph, please reach out 😉
#foss friends, I need your help.
Are there any #debian developers who can help me find a sponsor?
I've reached out to the pam-u2f maintainer, and the authentication team, but neither responded. The person I tagged on the merge request didn't respond either.
The upstream developer responded when I reached out to them, but they're not involved in packaging and they pointed out the maintainer hadn't done anything on this repo in a year. Reporting someone MIA also requires a mentor...
#Microsoft has been trying this for the past three decades. UEFI didn't manage to lock alternative operating systems out of the hardware originally designed for Windows like they intended, so they need to come up with something new. That's the whole purpose of Microsoft #Pluton.
All the talk about increased security is just marketing bullshit intended to gaslight users. It's quite uncommon for malware nowadays to overwrite the MBR, and hypervisor-like isolation of user-space code can also be achieved in the OS layer without locking up the hardware. The simple truth is that Microsoft wants its monopoly back and it wants to do it by kicking any potential competitors out of hardware designed for Windows, whatever it takes.
Microsoft deserves to burn in a ball of fire and leave no traces behind. I'm sick of their continuous arrogant attempts of establishing an absolute monopoly out of market share weight, not out of merit. Weren't they supposed to focus on that stinky pile of crap that is Azure, and finally leave non-cloud users in peace?
This is yet one more argument in support of open hardware, and in support of hardware manufacturers that don't ship solutions with Windows pre-installed.
To future historians—not just of computing, but of humanity—the current period will be a dark age.
How was Facebook used by students in the 2010s? We cannot show you, that version of Facebook is not hosted anywhere.
How did MySpace look around 2009? We don't really know, the Wayback Machine only shows a limited amount of static content, and there may only be a few surviving screenshots
What correspondence did Vint Cerf have as president of the ACM with other luminaries of computing industry and research? We do not know; Google will not publish his emails.
What was it like playing Angry Birds on an iPhone 3G? We do not know; Apple is no longer distributing signed receipts for that binary.
What did the British cabinet discuss when they first learned of the Coronavirus pandemic? We do not know; they chatted on a private WhatsApp group.
What books were published analysing the aftermath of the Maidan coup in Ukraine? We do not know; we do not have the keys for the Digital Editions DRM.
How was the coup covered in televised news? We do not know; the broadcasters used RealVideo and Windows Media Encoder and we cannot read those files.
We have to ask ourselves how we are going to preserve and transmit knowledge about our age to the next generations. Knowledge about an age where information is produced, consumed and discarded within hours, days or months, or where it's only stored on the server rooms of a handful of corporations, with no guarantees that those businesses will exist in the future, and with no way of accessing that information unless a certain set of regulatory, hardware, software pre-conditions are met.
That's why projects like the Internet Archive deserve more recognition and funding. That's why web scraping should not only be a civic right, but a civic duty to the next generations. Otherwise all the knowledge about the great age of information will be transmitted orally - with all the distortions that such transmission implies.

#Copilot is basically selling code that other people wrote, without providing them with any compensation nor credits, and disregarding any possible license incompatibilities.
And #Github will probably get away with it because the whole thing is "AI-curated", so no human purposefully violated any intellectual property.
What leaves me speechless is that Github is making so much profit out of other people's open-source code, and they also claim that in a couple of years "there will be no more code sitting on local machines", but they are very, very wary from releasing THEIR own source code (like Gitlab and Gitea did) so people can run their own instances.
I'm still on Github because that's where all the devs and projects are. But all of my projects are now on a self-hosted Gitlab instance, mirrored to Github (and I'm even considering dropping that mirror). If you don't want Github to get rich from your code while giving you nothing in return, you should probably do the same.
23. Juni 1919: Alexander Meißner erhält ein Patent auf die nach ihm benannte Schaltung zur „Erzeugung elektrischer Schwingungen“. Deren kontrollierte, stabile Erzeugung ist entscheidend für die drahtlose Übermittlung von Sprache, Musik und Bildern. Diese bahnbrechende Erfindung ermöglichte die Signalübermittlung für Rundfunk, Funk, Telefonie und Fernsehen jener Zeit.
Digitalisierung hat weit zurückreichende Grundlagen.
Personen die, die "42-Stunden-Woche gegen Fachkräftemangel" kauften, kauften auch:
- Wasserfeuerlöscher für eine Pommesbude.
- Tabascotropfen gegen Trockene und müde Augen.
- Wick Vapo Rub als Gleitgel gegen Langeweile beim Sex.
Gekauft hatten die Personen bereits:
- Löhne ganz knapp über Mindestlohn, damit sich die Angestellten nicht ausgepresst vorkommen.
- Niedrige Löhne, weil sich die Angestellten sonst nicht anstrengen.
- Nicht geschimpft ist auch gelobt.
After taking 5 minutes to adjust my ansible-pull config (it is like a description of what I want to have installed on my computer), I used 1 command to let the freshly installed laptop download and config most of my stuff.
In the meantime I could have grabbed breakfast, since it is fully automatic.
Today I removed Windows and installed Linux on my work laptop. I have been using my Linux desktop for work in the last two years anyway.
Wish me luck that nothing breaks, so I can convince more colleagues to do so aswell. So far I got 2% of my colleagues at least interested in Linux or got them to switch too.
